Wine producer - Italian cooperative Erste and NEU Keller, whose vineyards are located in the province of Trentino-Alto Adige. This is the northernmost wine region in Italy. Due to its complex geopolitical history, it consists of two autonomous provinces: Trentino and Alto Adige. Trentino is almost entirely composed of native Italians, while Alto Adige has a predominantly German-speaking and Russian-speaking population. This is due to the same status in the region as part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, from which he left in 1919. The wines of this region are the imprints of the cultural and political past, sometimes dramatic and really complex. While Germanic varieties (such as Muller-Thurgau and Sylvaner) reigned supreme in some areas of vineyards, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon Blanc in full swing takes another pristine land. Thus, the province of Trentino-Alto Adige is the only Italian region, the area of vineyards which have increased significantly during the last quarter of the twentieth century.
